Suggested Planting Requirements:    Soil should be fertile, well drained and rich in organic matter, with a pH of 5.8 to 6.8.  Eggplant also needs a lot of calcium, so add lime to the soil before you plant.  Southern California growers should be careful of over-liming an area.  Plant eggplants in warm area sheltered from winds.

Growing Recommendations: Transplant to the garden when all danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has reached 60°F. Eggplants can be fairly drought tolerant but do well in optimal moisture levels.
